Armenian Studies Scholarship

For graduate students of any nationality

Keeping with its mission to support the acquisition of specific knowledge in the field of Armenian studies, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation invites applications targeting all graduate students pursuing research in this domain. It is a full or partial scholarship, based on a global competition, up to 50,000 USD per year, for a maximum of four years. Six scholarships will be provided per year.


Who is eligible?

Students admitted or already pursuing a Master, PhD degree or Post Doc in an institution of higher education anywhere in the world. Modern and contemporary periods, including current issues facing Armenia and the diaspora will be privileged. Note that we define Armenian studies as broader than area studies.

The application process for the 2018-2019 academic year will open on the 1st of March 2018 and the deadline for applications is the 15th of May 2018.
